This is another simple idea that will get a lot of laughs. Just put some Cheerios in a plastic bag with a label that says Doughnut Seeds. Think of the funny messages/instructions that you can include … “Easy to Grow – Fun to Eat”, “You Must believe! If nothing grows, you end up with doughnut holes”, etc. If you want to do this up fancy, there are some companies online that offer colorful, printed Doughnut Seed packets. Your profits will suffer but they are cute.
